i want to bring in ed lavandara who is joining us from centennial, colorado. ed, walk us through the charges that he is faced with. >> sure thing, suzanne. essentially, james holmes has been charged with 142 criminal counts. 24 counts of first-degree murder and 116 counts of attempted murder, and essentially, that is doubled up on the number of victims inside of that movie theater. remember, 12 people killed an 58 people who were wound and taken to hospitals. now the legal reason behind that according to the paperwork we have received is that they were able to file double the charges on each of those victims, because number one, prosecutors say it was a planned attack, and premeditated and also because james holmes showed an extreme indifference towards the people he was killing, and that is that he did not matter who he was killing, but shooting indiscriminantly into the movie theater. because off that, that gives them the legal basis to file double the counts against james holmes. there is also one count of possessing explosives and one count which is a sentence enhancer becaus
on multiple counts of first degree murder next monday. fox news correspondent, greg boswell joins us live from aurora colorado with the latest craig. >> reporter: good evening most of the talk is generated by the demeanour, appearance of james holmes the suspected gunman in this case not just the orange reddish hair but also, his stare. i describe it as a blank stare other people call it dazed and confused looking like maybe he was going to sleep many family members inside we talked to afterwards felt like maybe he was acting a little bit. acting they were saying because he wants to avoid the death penalty down the line. the prosecutor in this case, saying that is at least 60 days decision away after the arraignment, which is next monday. >>> so with all the information that we gathered, at least authorities did from the suspects apartment anything new? >> just things we have reported on before. there was also a knife in the car and another glock in the car so that is four guns and a knife inside of course the gasoline, the gun powder, the various rockets that were basically fireworks displaye

. it is necessarily to speak, it is necessary to give a man to speak with us vernlthsz i want to explain how we got here. mali is in the middle of a war that the world needs to watch. the it began when the united states and nato intervened in libya. when the weapons were stolen by islamic radicals. the tour egg used the weapons to fight and declare independence from mali. the country was split in half. the mali government with only about 37,000 troops couldn't stop them, and frustrated by that failure, some commanders staged a koup. mali fell into complete disarray and that's when islamic radicals seized the moment. person after person here has told us they've seen fighters from the middle east. the islamic radicals kept in and kraushd the tour egg. they have many more weapons. 340u7b9 mounted on the back of 4 x 4s. the radicals use those weapons to destroy historic shrines. they say the consequences of the world letting this convinces grow bigger and bigger are dire. >> translator: the actions of the terrorists have direct convinces for europe and the united states. >> i can tell you here people a
of chefs, first, the latest on the tragedy in colorado and how it affects us all. >>> good morning, i'm melissa harris-perry. today, president barack obama will travel to aurora, colorado to meet with the grieving families of the victims of a shooting street that turned a midnight screening of "the dark knight rises" into a horrific tragedy. 26 victims remain hospitalized this morning. 9 in critical condition. the suspect, 24-year-old james holmes, a former neuroscience graduate student, is being held in solitary confinement, while he awaits a court appearance in the county on monday. yesterday, federal and local authorities disarmed the explosives rigged inside holmes' apartment, designed to kill whomever entered it. police have allowed residents evacuated from surrounding homes to return. let's get the latest from kristen dahlgren from aurora. good morning, kristen. >> reporter: good morning, melissa. you can see holmes' apartment behind me here, the one on the third floor there with windows broken out by authorities. as they were disarming those bombs. his building is still roped o
improvised grenades and three jugs of some kind of improvised napalm. they designed the bombs using a remote-controlled robotic device. we could hear a small blast outside here yesterday, and they also worked to preserve what's going to be used as evidence in the case against them as they continue to build that. last night, the fbi left here with what looked like a laptop and hard drive, and they also are saying that they have found evidence inside the apartment that shows this was calculated and deliberate both in the shooting and arming this apartment here with that network of bombs, melissa. >> kristen, thank you so much. undoubtedly, what we have seen since this tragedy as horrific as it is, is still some of the best news you can magiimag manl, that they could disarm that without further loss of life. >> let's bring in craig meeks and jonathan alter. thank you, both, for being here. we're starting to get to a point a couple of days since the tragedy where we can start to think about what it means more broadly. obviously, the president is going to colorado today. going in his role as pres

[ romney ] i'm mitt romney and i approve this message. . >>> joining us i'm jessica doyle. jc hayward has the day off. >>> police in aerror remark colorado are identifying to -- in aurora, colorado are trying to navigate through jamie holmes' home. at least 12 people are dead and over 50 are injured in a shooting. among those hurt is a 3-month- old baby. police say 24-year-old holmes walked into the theater and started firing. here's what witnesses had to say about the horror inside that theater. >> he was just in a black gas mask and all black. besides that -- [ inaudible ] >> he took a gun and pointed it straight to my face. he was literally three feet away from me. he was wearing a gas mask and he looked like he was from a s.w.a.t. team or something. i was just terrifed. i didn't know what to do. i jumped forward into the aisle and curled into a ball and waited for him to go up the stairs. >> there was a break. stuck my head up. caught a glimpse of him, the main silhouette and he started shooting again. >> none of us knew what was going on. at that point there's a
that had been evacuated. she explained to us the night of the shooting that there was loud music emerging from james holmes apartment and that she had gone up there to knock on the door and at one point had called authorities to let them know about that, but they said they were too busy with the shooting and they couldn't spare someone to come over here and do that, but she said the door was unlocked and told us the door was unlocked. obviously, she's very emotional about the fact she easily could have opened up that door and who knows what would have happened if she had done that. so luckily, for her, she decided not to do that and went back downstairs, but a lot of this area remains cordoned off and remains shut down. at one point, it would allow authorities to come back and james holmes' apartment, that will be shut down for quite some time and i'm not sure whether the surrounding areas will be opened up here in the coming days. obviously, the people whoive around this area are probably antsy to get back into their apartments and they'll be passing on developments about that and how th
will use it as a healing opportunity and a chance to really show solidarity. on an individual basis, today they have grief counseling at a pair of high schools to help people process the trauma. >> jim, i feel so bad fort families of those who lost loved ones. the bodies were in the theater for so long and weren't given the exact word if it was their laughed ones. finally they got the word last night. have the bodies been removed? >> yeah. around 5:00 last night they were able to get all the bodies out of there. it takes a long time for the coroners to come in and the crime scene investigators to come in and process these sites. i know it was very important to the police to make that notification. you be imagine with that many -- that much of a huge shooting site, that many bullets, that many shell casings, what a site that must be to process. >> jim, are police still inside the theater investigating? >> yeah. there's still police over there for sure. the adjoining shopping area, they actually plan on reopening today. the movie theater itself still roped off. still police in there doing th
and shooting investigation, just go to foxnews.com online on whatever device you use for the very latest information on this story. >> heather: you can believe this 100 days left in the race for the white house. it can't get any tighter. a new poll showing president obama and governor romney are all tied up with 46% each. these numbers especially significant looking ahead to november. in nine of the past ten elections, the candidate leading the gallup poll to hundred days out has won the presidency. what about this. it's all tied up. john is a columnist and thanks for joining us. all tied, 46% down to the finish who crosses first and wins november 6th and how? >> obviously we have a lot of game changing events. we have three presidential events. each candidate is going to have a speech laying out the future. the basics of this campaign have been the same for a long time. president obama is the incumbent. everybody knows him. everybody has an opinion on him. he has not crossed 50% of the vote in two key questions in over two years. one, do you believe he deserves reelection and two do you
the injured, two u.s. air force reservists and one navy service member. earlier today, president obama spoke about the tragedy. >> my daughters go to the movies. what if malia and sasha had been at the theater as so many of our kids do every day. michelle and i will be fortunate enough to hug our girls a little tighter tonight and i'm sure you will do the same with your children, but for those parents who may not be so lucky, we have to embrace them and let them know we will be there for them as a nation. so again, i'm so grateful that all of you are here. i am so moved by your support, but there are going to be other days for politics. this i think is a day for prayer and reflection. >> joining me today, "time" magazine deputy washington bureau chief, michael crowley and patricia murphy, contributor to the daily beast. certainly a day of reflection. we are all still processing a lot as it comes to the details of this tragedy. michael, i want to talk about the president's comments, saying this isn't a day for politics, calling for us to -- it's a reminder of the fragility of life and calling
